The Frog and the Scorpion
April 4, 2007 9:16pm CST
A scorpion comes up to a frog as its preparing to cross a stream and asks for a ride. "I can't let you on my back," the frog says, "you're a scorpion--you'll kill me." "No, I won't," the scorpion says. The frog looks at him dubiously, but the scorpion says "you're different--I promise I won't." The frog lets the scorpion on his back and embarks on his journey across the water. Halfway through, the scorpion stings the frog in the back. "You promised you wouldn't!" The frog exclaims. "Now we're both going to die." "I can't help it--I'm a scorpion." Ever find yourself forgetting that you're dealing with a scorpion, take your eye off the stinger, and get stung? Happens to me quite a bit.

Oh Man it feels so bad when someone betrays you and its even worse when you get it from someone you never expect. Well what to say things happens. This is one aspect that we dont learn even if we get betrayed we seem to trust people again and again I think its just human to be so. But each time we get something like that in return we get strong and learn more. But I dont believe that someone is destined to cheat people always like the Scorpion who says he cant help it. I believe everyone has an amount of goodness in them. I'm really sorry if you had an experience like that.
